Hutcherson of ‘Hunger Games’ to toss Reds pitch
Question of the Day
CINCINNATI (AP) - Happy Reds' games! A star of the hit movie "The Hunger Games" will throw out the ceremonial first pitch for the Miami Marlins-Cincinnati Reds game April 7.
Josh Hutcherson is a native of nearby Union, Ky., featured in the new movie about teens fighting each other to death in a bleak future. It opened last weekend with a $152.5 million box office, third-biggest ever.
Meanwhile, a Cincinnati-area resident with experience in a less-gory competition between youths will sing the National Anthem before the night game. Eben Franckewitz (EE'-bin FRAYN-kuh-witz) was a contestant on this season's "American Idol."
The Reds in recent years have followed Cincinnati's traditional Opening Day celebrations with promotions for their second, "Opening Night" game. Reds players will walk a red carpet to greet fans before the game.
